Hello! And welcome to our classroom website!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University in 2012 with my Bachelor's in Early childhood Education. I then graduated from Grand Canyon University in 2014 with my Master's in Curriculum Instruction with emphasis on Reading. I also attended Chandler schools from 2nd grade until high school graduation! I have worked in the Chandler District for the past 6 years. This is my fourth year at Shumway and my third year in 1st grade.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that every child deserves an opportunity for a quality education. Children are our future. We need to educate them, not only in academics, but in life. We are raising tomorrow's leaders. We need to show them their potential and everything they can achieve if they put their minds to it.
